marconi, josĂŠ curitiba, brazil Besides background in industrial and footwear design, my main expertise is on instructional illustrations, but I am also able to create expressive or artistic images (mixed media). My objective for the next years is to join my craft skills as illustrator (handrawn mainly) with my scientific knowledge on how to design effective graphic and cinematographic instructions. Fifteen years experience as university lecturer including a short experience as teacher assistant at the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication (The University of Reading, UK). I have made presentations about the graphic representation of dynamic events in USA (Philadelphia and Atlanta) and UK (Wrexham, Cambridge, Greenwich and Reading), where my audience included technical communicators, information designers and illustrators. email@example.com http://www.behance.net/jose-de-souza/frame

Freud, Darwin and Einstein Experiments on portrait illustration Experimental techniques applied to portraits of famous scientists: Freud, Darwin and Eisntein.
The inspiration came from the concept of “digging in the dirt” of our (at least mine) unconsciousness. Technique involved collage (creased and tear apart tissue paper) and scratching (acrylic paint over a paraffin base).

Collection of illustrated manuals Collection of illustrated manuals that was developed during my PhD years at Reading (UK). This is a small sample of my collection of more than 300 illustrated manuals. The start point was my PhD research, which has a chapter on “graphic representations of motion for instructional purposes”. Besides working as a source of ideas, the collection became a topic of “show and tell” presentations at the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication (The University of Reading, United Kingdom) and Department of Design (Federal University of Paraná, Curitiba, Brazil).

06 MANUAIS | JOSÉ
Pictorial cards for alternative communication Design of pictorial cards targeted to people with intellectual disabilities or that can not communicate through spoken or written words These illustrations were developed for the project “Communis” sponsored by SENAI (Brazilian organisation that deals with industrial training). Communis is a graphic system formed by printed cards with images and text. It is targeted to industrial managers who has to deal with employees that have speech difficulties (e.g. brain damages, intellectual deficiency, autism). In graphic terms, there is an obvious influence from Otto Neurath and Gerd Arntz work for the Isotype. However, later on these drawings had to be changed in order to fit to the in-house designer’s style.

According to AllMusic website, Bezerra da Silva has composed and performed sambas full of the Carioca malice (malandragem) of the hills, with which he chronicles the hardships of the shanty town dwellers (and the violence/ drugs scenario, even before gangsta rap).
